Sold my camera on 1/7/ 13. The buyer paid by paypal into my paypal account . Received an email from paypal informing me they were holding the money but could not release it until I supplied them with a few details.
A scanned copy of my current driving licence.
A scanned copy of my passport.
A scanned copy of my birth certificate.
A scanned copy of last years tax return statement from the ATO.
A scanned copy of current utility receipts.
A declaration that I am not in political office.
When I supply these details they will review my status and decide if they will release MY $790.00 after taking out their fee of 20.00 from the original payment of $810.00.
Is it just me or are these details just about all someone requires for a classic case of identity theft ??
